UK: The Castle Inn has reopened following a 3-month renovation

Butcombe Brewery, which is part of Liberation Group, has reopened The Castle Inn after completing a three month long renovation.

The property is located near to Lulworth Cove in Dorset. Following the major refurbishment, The Castle's interior has been updated with bright, contemporary fabrics and feature walls, designed to reflect the relaxed elegance of Butcombe's estate. The Castle Inn will now offer 12 boutique ensuite bedrooms individually designed with quirky furnishings.
The Castle Inn's new-look restaurant will offer a market menu focusing on grilled and seafood dishes, showcasing the finest Dorset produce sourced from within 30 miles. Ashley Walcott has been appointed as the new head chef. He previously worked at the Fat Duck in Bray under Heston Blumenthal.

The Castle Inn was acquired by the Liberation Group in October 2017. The property is a short walk from some of Dorset's key landmarks including Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, situated on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site and surrounded by the Isle of Purbeck countryside. The pub will retain its dog-friendly reputation.

Jayson Perfect, managing director at Butcombe Pubs and Inns, said: "The Castle Inn is our flagship pub in Dorset, and quite rightly a local favourite, so we knew we had to preserve its distinct character and heritage during the renovation. The team has worked tirelessly to get the site up and running ahead of what we hope will be a busy Easter weekend. The results of the refurbishment are fantastic. We've created a gorgeous, high quality site which fits perfectly with the surrounding countryside and coastline. We're looking forward to welcoming The Castle's strong, local following as well as new visitors over the coming weeks."
